Testing of portions of Site 41YN2, the O. W. Hill Site, in Young County, Texas, was undertaken to determine eligibility for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places and to determine site depth, cultural context, and archaeological significance. The site is located on a hillside and terrace of the Brazos River downstream from the confluence of the Clear Fork of the Brazos River and adjacent to the State Highway 67 crossing. Evidence recovered indicates that insufficient material exists within the highway right-of-way to warrant further investigations and that those portions of the site within the right-of-way do not meet the criteria for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.
